Hello all, I’m really enjoying competing in the CSR!
I am new here though and have made lots of mistakes! But I think I’m getting up to speed.
Anyway, my suggestion is that it might be a good idea to run 2 or 3 concurrently; so that there is always one open to compete in.
It seems this is the current 1-week rolling system - there’s a day making the first post with the outline of the challenge, regulations etc. Then maybe 3-5 days only that can be used to design competotors, and a day of judging plus maybe a day or two deciding who is hosting next.
It leaves a fairly narrow window to design your car, and sometimes when I just really want to build a car I can’t because the submissions are closed and I don’t know who the next customer is and what car they want to buy!
Would it make more sense to have a kind of rolling stagger to it? So that (for the sake of argument) CSR 72 continues as normal, but also CSR 73 starts on the same day.
CSR 72 has a one week limit as usual (it’s the transition) but CSR 73 has a two-week turnaround.
CSR 74 starts as soon as CSR 72 has finished, and is set by the winner of CSR 72; again with 2-week turnaround.
Likewise for CSR 73 and CSR 75.
This would mean there would always be an active CSR to design a submission for, and it would mean the host is perhaps not so rushed in their duties
What do you think?
